Funerals; for most of us the trappings of the funeral parlor and the finality of the cemetery commemorates the end, but for an actor like Armand Tesla, who was best remembered for his vampire roles, a funeral is only the beginning. Armand Tesla was to be buried in his vampire costume, but obviously the aged star of stage and screen horror was not yet ready to ring down the final curtain. No, it would not be nearly so easy to bury such a restless corpse. So be prepared for a case of a body that won't stay put and the tale of a struggling young movie director with more ambition than talent who turns up missing at the vampire's last bow. Indeed, my friends, this will prove to be just the kind of case that only a psychic Hollywood detective like Charles Criswell King, aided by Famous Monster Forrest J Ackerman, can solve. So, gentle reader, be prepared for a tale of creaking doors and empty coffins, of gunshots in the night and damsels in distress, all part of "The Vampire's Tomb Mystery."
What did you love best about The Vampire's Tomb Mystery?
It holds true to the time frame with the perfect amount of suspense, mystery, and humor. It kept me on the edge of my seat whilst taking care of some very boring paperwork. Thank you, Mr. Kemper for making at least two work days not so tedious!
